Roads were made for journeys...
If you're in a group and running 3 or 4 times the pace, get thy ass out. Fight in your weight class, ya sissies.

But I won't join the 1000k group, because it wouldn't be fair to those who are newer and working to up their miles, just as is it's not real fair of those doing 30+ miles/week to hog the leader board on the 1000 mile group. Some of us are working every bit as hard, but are less experienced, naturally slower, or limited by outside committments to the time we can dedicate to running. We deserve the chance to see our names on the leader board of at least one group from time to time, too, right?
Hell, I just ran 17.2 miles in the past 2 days and I'm still not a leader in the 1000 mile group. Because of the mileage hogs in there I doubt I ever will be.
Your toughness is made up of equal parts persistence and experience. You don't so much outrun your opponents as outlast and outsmart them, and the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head." - Joe Henderson
Even 2x the pace....
I'm not quite at 2x the 1000-mile group pace, but I've left the group. If my mileage drops due to injury or other circumstances, I'll rejoin later in the year.
Kirsten, it's pretty sad that we can get close to 30 miles in a week and not even be on the leadersboard!
